Old Warburton Residents

“The Old Warburton Residents Association was formed recently as a response to news that our little community is right in the middle of the Yarra Ranges Councils planned “Mountain Bike Destination Project”. Most proposed trails are in and around Old Warburton, running between our properties, close to some houses, and all over the slopes of Mt Little Joe and Mt Tugwell either side of us. This is a large $6 million dollar infrastructure project that council predicts will bring 130 000 visitors annually. We resent our quiet little settlement being turned into a playground for tourists and consider it to be an example of totally inappropriate development.”
